Abstract

A 2-year-old boy with Rotor syndrome was studied with Tc-99m N-(di-isopropylphenyl carbamoylmethyl) iminodiacetic acid (DIPA). In this patient, the liver was not visualized, and there was persistent visualization of the cardiac blood pool and along with prominent kidney excretion. It is concluded that Tc-99m DIPA cholescintigraphy may be helpful in the diagnosis of Rotor syndrome.
